Zunyi, the second-largest city of Guizhou province, is a land of revolutionary heroes and hometown to Maotai, the national white liquor.
It is among the country's 24 cities first approved by the State for their historic and cultural interest due to its "four ones" - one meeting, one mountain pass, one river and one liquor.
A 1935 meeting of the Communist Party of China in Zunyi was one of the decisive moments in history. Loushan Mountain Pass and Chishui River were sites of epic survival by the Red Army. Maotai earned honor of the No. 1 liquor for a country burdened with poverty and misery from war. [睢园绿竹/bbs.fengniao]
